Default MOBO Screwed?

So I was screwing in my MOBO and it appears that I only have 4 places to screw it in on. The MOBO has 2 more spots i could but my case doesnt have anything there...

I was wondering if that would cause me any problems farther down the line and if so what do I do about it?

Just make sure it is completely secure otherwise I wouldn't see a problem with that.

Make a mental note where those screws are not at. I'm assuming that they are both on the bottom.
If you try to insert a card where the screws are missing then be extra gentle, your motherboard will not be as rigid here.
Build to be updated, a reminder to myself.
